I think I just spilchuked my repharse all over the desk.

Anybody got any old South Bay pics? I probably have some, but I didn't realize how "beautiful" the area was when I lived there so long ago, so we mostly have pictures of our cul de sac.

I was going to post an image, but it's so large, I've had second thoughts. To make things fair, I'm sending it via U.S. Mail to you, RFC. It should arrive at your house in about a week. I figure that will be faster than you downloading it. Always thinking of you.

You should move to one of these master planned communities. They have everything conveniently located, good infrastructure like cable & DSL - they even have oversight boards called homeowners associations that help keep the place looking neat & tidy. Very nice places with good property values.

I am going to ask my Mom if she still has an old black and white pic' from long ago. It was an overhead shot of the Harbor City area around Narbonne High School before the high school was built. The students went door to door selling these pictures to help fund the construction for the new high school. It was mostly open land, and Western was a dinky two lane road.

I'm pretty sure this is a shot of the old park and lake that used to be south of the Inland Center Mall.
Artesian wells in San Bernardino. There were so many of them, they were considered a major nuisance and most of them were capped. many of the capped artesian wells were never mapped and that created major problems when the south end of the city saw a building boom in the 70s and 80s. One I remember in particular was the post office on E St below Orange Show Rd. The building was one of the first projects in the area and constantly had a few feet of water in the basement despite pumps that ran 24/7.

San Bernardino's artesian wells were the source of water that supplied the Gage Canal which made citrus farming possible in Riverside.

Is anyone else interested in old waterworks? I've got a bunch of pics of the Gage Canal and also the Bear Creek system that delivered water from Big Bear to Redlands. Bear Creek was quite the undertaking with lots of small dams and tunnels. It was also a neat spot to explore and enjoy the many pools and flumes. I'll post a few if anyone is interested.

From that picture of the "First School in the Fontana area", if you look close, you can tell that Jack was already the teachers pet. I wonder what went on in that old schoolhouse between RFC and Marm Letourneau?

It's probably just a bit to the east from you. Just a guess, but the area east of Cherry was mostly grapefruit north of Santa Ana Ave and grapes south of Santa Ana. I've been told most of the hog ranches were west of Cherry.

It's a good thing the wind never blows in Fontana. That looks like a good fart would have knocked it over.

School was only open one day when RFC attended. You had better read up on the 1892 presumed earthquake that shook Fontana. The ensuing damage defied description and the exact cause was never fully explained, but apparently the school exploded into flames after Jack lit up a cigarette at the movement of the earthquake.

I got an IM from tearabite asking for waterworks, so here ya go. This is the system that made up Santa Ana River Powerhouse #1 (SAR-1) that was fed by Bear Creek and ran from Big Bear down to the East Highlands/Mentone area. SAR-1 is one of the 3 powerhouses that make up SCE's SAR complex. All of these photos and captions are courtesy of Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering Record via Library of Congress. Unless otherwise noted, they were shot in 1991 as part of the effort to document the area prior to construction of the Seven Oaks Dam.

They are arranged in order (as best I can tell) beginning at the top and heading downstream. One of my all-time favorite days was the day my wife and I spent exploring this segment of SAR back around 1987 or 88. I'd worked 30 or 40 days straight, woke up one day, looked out the window and was greeted by one of the nicest spring mornings you'll ever see and came down with a terminal case of spring fever. I headed into work, told them I was gonna take the day off, pulled a nice little Jeep CJ5 from the inventory, went home, grabbed the wife, went for a drive with no destination in mind. We headed up the 330 and, just by chance, pulled off onto a dirt road in the Fredalba area and this was where we wound up. We saw the system ranging from the dam in the 1st pic down as far as the entry portal at the 4th flume.

I remember these signs from a service station (remember those?) on the corner of Central Ave. and Kingsley St in Montclair during the 1960's.

There were other service stations around at that time, too - there were so many service stations and gas stations that there was one on every corner of every major street.

1. (1960) Aerial view looking north, the construction of I-5 at Oso Creek in what is now Mission Viejo. In the middle to the right you can see Oso Canyon. The two spans of the freeway bridge over Oso Creek are shown in the center of the pic. This is now the area of the Oso Parkway offramp. At top center you can see the La Paz curve of the new freeway. At left center is the old Gavilan overhead and curve of old Hwy 101.

2. A tighter shot of the above, this time taken in 1959 while construction was still taking place.

1. I-5 looking south in the Capistrano area at what would someday be called the Avery Parkway interchange. For the life of me I can't remember what that was named prior to Avery. Started with a M I believe. Early 1960s.

2. I-5 looking southbound at Avenida Pico in San Clemente in 1961.

3. I-5 looking northbound at the brand new El Toro Road interchange in 1959.

The boat is Balboa Island, and The White House Restaurant is still there in Laguna on S. PCH a few blocks south of LCR. It's been there forever.
